    Inline Skating instructor Krista Heubusch demonstrates the inline skating basic skills.

    Krista Heubusch: Hi, I am Krista from Skater's Quest and I am here to teach you the basics of inline skating. We are going to show you demonstrations on how to move forward, how to move backward, how to stop and two different ways on how to turn when inline skating.

    Before you start skating, you need to make sure you have well maintained inline skates and well maintained protective equipments such as your helmets and all of your pads. In order to learn safely and effectively it's important to find a location that is nice and controlled. Make sure that the pavement is smooth and flat and you want to avoid water, oil and sand.

    We also recommend that you take a lesson with a certified instructor so that you can maximize your skating potential. All of us at Skater's Quest are certified instructors and I have the privilege of being a skate education specialist or examiner where I certify instructors around the world.

    We have been teaching inline skaters in the Washington DC area for over 18 years. Are you ready to learn how to do inline skate? Let's get ready to roll.
